Ok andvǫnum Endils
ítrskíð á dreif síðan
sann-Njǫrðungum seima
sveif hundruðum undir,
svát glójarðar gerði
Gylfa skíðs of víði
— búkr hné margr fyr mæki —
meinfœrt of lǫg hreinum.

Ok {andvǫnum sann-Njǫrðungum seima} sveif síðan hundruðum á dreif undir {ítrskíð Endils}, svát gerði meinfœrt of víði {hreinum {glójarðar {skíðs Gylfa}}} of lǫg; margr búkr hné fyr mæki.

And {life-lacking true Njǫrðungar <gods> of gold} [MEN] drifted afterwards in hundreds, scattered under {the glorious ski of Endill <sea-king>} [SHIP], so that it made the going dangerous across the ocean {for reindeer {of the gleaming earth {of the ski of Gylfi <sea-king>}}} [SHIP > SEA > SHIPS] across the sea; many a body fell before the sword.
